Scenes from the Goodreads book swap with Kogi BBQ at Book Soup
If you weren't at Book Soup yesterday afternoon, you missed the Goodreads book swap. The social-networking-through-books website provided tables where people brought books to give away -- and where they gathered to take away books left by others -- all free of charge. That's Otis Chandler, Goodreads' founder, above left in the white T-shirt; he picked up a couple of James Bond books.
Those who were patient enough to wait in line for 45 minutes or more got lunch -- for a reasonable price -- from the Kogi BBQ taco truck, which set up shop in Book Soup's back parking lot.
The Bauers came from Burbank. Steven, left, picked up a copy of the 1975 bestseller "Shogun" by James Clavell, while Lauren, right, got a copy of "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle," a 2008 Oprah book club selection. Claire, center, came for the tacos.
